never let slurs slide amongst friends. you gotta nip that shit it the bud. it's as simple as insisting "don't use that word," there might be a confrontation but you gotta keep insisting

@SuricrasiaOnline Hm Yes I Will Normalize Signifiers Of Dehumanization And Hate In My Cultural Mythology And Nothing Bad Could Possibly Come Of It


@SuricrasiaOnline this is good advice, though myself I use slurs (that apply to me) as reclamation and taking back power that they have over me.
@SuricrasiaOnline but yeah I get that you were writing about a different kind of dynamic.

@SuricrasiaOnline people who use slurs online i've seen are usually cowards about it so if you tell them to stop they're gonna whine but cause they don't wanna have that situation again they tend to stop
